Peter Calo



Quotes on “Time Machine” Peter’s new CD

“Peter Calo is the musician you meet early in your career and all of a sudden you’re 70 years old and you’re lucky enough to still be playing and writing with him. This album shows his ability to merge styles and introduce new structures and harmonies with himself singing lead vocals. Always an inspiration and always quite surprising. Life sure does shine bright on an ordinary day!! Oh, wait a second, I think he wrote that!!”

Carly Simon

“Peter Calo is not only a Guitar player He is an artist. With great knowledge And depth and has the unique gift of bringing out the best in a song I don't think Peter realizes how much Pleasure and how much I learned When I worked with him.”

Billy J Kramer

"I have listened with great joy...this is excellent work...Peter Calo's Time Machine is aptly named, as these wonderful songs and their delicious and masterful musicality take us both through the past and into the future...and know Every Ordinary Day is my current favorite... ;)"

-Michael McGlone Actor/Writer/Musician

“Hi peter, I'm listening to your album and I love the mix of styles, the unselfconscious vocals and the smart lyrics! I especially love Elephants Never Forget, it's a deep, lyrical and soulful sixties rock pop song. I hear it in a movie. I hope many many ears get to relish your work.”

Your faithful songwriter, Sophie B Hawkins
